Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What happened to re-enrollment days in January/February?
A: We have replaced the annual re-enrollment process with Continuous Enrollment, a system that is positive, paperless, and more convenient for families. It allows students to be continuously enrolled at GCA. Rather than complete the Online Enrollment packet, parents will sign the Continuous Enrollment agreement.
Q: Why the change to Continuous Enrollment?
A: We have listened to parent feedback and understand that the former re-enrollment process in January and February coincided with an already busy time of year. Our goal is to simplify the process for families with the understanding that their child will be automatically reenrolled at GCA until graduation unless otherwise notified by the parents.
Q: What happened to the re-enrollment fee?
A: In lieu of the past re-enrollment fee, there will be a continuous enrollment fee drafted on February 28, 2018 through FACTS. Beginning in June 2018, the continuous enrollment fee will be included into the monthly tuition payment for 2018-19 and there will not be a separate charge in February.
Q: I have changed my mind about my current FACTS payment plan. What should I do?
A: Once the online FACTS agreement is set up, the agreement will be the same each year unless written notice to change the payment plan option is provided to the Business Office. Contact Jill Akers, Director of Student Accounts, to make changes to your payment plan.
Q: What will the tuition rates be for next year?
A: Tuition rates for the upcoming school year will be posted to the GCA website in December.
Q: I submitted my Continuous Enrollment Agreement (CEA), but we are not returning for the next school year.
A: To withdraw for the following school year, you must complete the GCA Withdrawal Form, available in the office.
Q: When can I apply for tuition assistance?
A: Current families may complete the application for tuition assistance after January 16, and it must be submitted by the March 31 deadline. New families may apply after receiving acceptance for enrollment.
Q: I am enrolling a new sibling. What do I need to do?
A: Complete the online application process at www.gcarams.org, under the Admissions tab.
